I think it is sad but true, if men were the bleeders these issues would have been resolved long ago. Good that EFC is moving the debate forward.

Swerve free nappies. Destroying the environment and there are resumable ones.

As ram said, plasters and bandages should be freely available from all public premises.

As they should be, as sanitary products should be.
Personal supplies of these items though? Well, they cost money to make and I think it's not obscene to have to pay for the cost of manufacture.

Womens lives are shit enough as it is having to bleed every 28 days. Making them pay on top of it just to try and have a sense of normality is shitty. Let them have this concession without questioning it.

They also shouldnt have to pay a luxury tax on their razors because men dont on theirs.

All razors are subject to the same 20% vat rate.

Women's razors being more expensive are due to shitehawk makers pushing what they can get away with.

Yeah, they're pretty horrendous like.
I'm shocked there hasn't been a mainstream, green, alternative of them brought to market & gone on to kill it.

I know a few women who use cups, but there’s a huge stigma around that.

Personally I think I’m with you on this Mick. It’s a great initiative by the club, and in public bathrooms these products should be freely available. Much like toilet paper for the home though, you have to pay. There’s little to no difference.

I think what most take issue with though is that sanitary products are subject to a ‘luxury item’ tax, which is absurd. They’re not a luxury in the slightest.

You see, we don't have a luxury tax in the UK (or the EU - who are the people who dictate this matter).
That's America (possibly Norway, i think).

Part of the emotion tied up behind this issue is due to urban legend type miscommunications.
They are taxed well under most things.
Except jaffa cakes. There is no tax on jaffa cakes!

Fair enough. The "luxury tax" I mention has just been removed on sanitary products here in Australia. Given the media hype I wrongly presumed it was a thing in the UK too.
